% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virginia, florida, and see whether in fact the race has tightened, particularly in a state like ohio, wolf, where the president had a commanding lead by five or six points. let's see if in that state which the republican campaign has to win, i believe, if mitt romney's to become president, let's see if the poll numbers in that state of ohio which we're going to see as this week proceeds, let's see if those numbers have tightened there because that's going to be a k

term then president obama has to, remember last week, journal came back and followed me today, last week reported about potential treasury secretaries. jack lew at the top of the list i said. erskin bowles is number two. larry fink may be a third. i think if the republicans take senate and house, if you want to get anything done with the budget i don't think you bring in there a partisan democrat. someone like erskin bowles. that would be a good thing. so, listen, i'm just saying a lot of this is odds making. mitt romney has not lost yet. ashley: no. >> i can tell what you his big money people are doing. they're hedging or the trend is to begin to hedge. not yet in the numbers but people in the romney campaign i'm telling you, they're telling fox business network first-hand they're feeling it. they're worried. they're hoping for a good debate performance can either reverse that trend or maybe prevent him from taking the form of a mass exodus. ashley: charlie, a day is a long time in politics. >> you're absolutely right. a long way to go yet. ashley: three days --. tracy: wednesday n

's like turning now into an urban legend. by the middle of next week, people will say barack obama can't walk down the sidewalk without stumbling. i'm stunned by -- i mean, the republicans are excited, but i'm stunned by how democrats seem to keep getting more depressed every day. i've had people that have never voted republican in their life. >> right. >> saying i may have to do it this year. >> i think there's been that. there's also been a little bit of a back-and-forth about the jobs numbers that have made the republicans look desperate. but yes, overall, i think the debate had a terrible impact for the president and one that i think is surprisingly lasting. >> yeah, why is that? >> well, because a lot of people were watching and because you're wondering why things don't work in washington. and when you see two people go head to head and you see it be so starkly clear stylistically, you kind of wonder if that is brought home. >> that the president's disconnect -- >> yeah. so there's a lot of work to be done in the next debate. i mean, a lot of work. he's going to have to get his ha
last week in the state of iowa, i believe, that said it was leaning one way or another. o obama or to romney. could that be possible? does anyone know what these early votes are? or are they just guessing? >> it is an educated guess. you know how many registered republicans, how many registered democrats you have. you know when those people vote and you make the guess that if they're registered republican, they're more than likely going to vote for the republican candidate. it's almost like the exit polls. you have to take people at their word that they voted the way they claimed they voted. >> gretchen: well, as we found out in the past, those exit polls are not always exactly as they might appear to be. ken, the former secretary of state, thanks for your time and explanations this morning. >> thank you, gretchen. >> gretchen: have a great week. grim milestone in afghanistan. 2,000 americans killed. so is this the response that you would expect from the commander in chief? >> al-qaeda is on the path of defeat and osama bin laden is dead.

: we talk a lot about what had been going on for the 2 1/2 weeks since the obama administration finally said it was a preplanned terrorist attack. we were wondering who was going to tate fall. james clapper, director of national intelligence, he seems like he's going to be the scapegoat. he's saying maybe we didn't tell the white house in time, maybe they didn't know. take a listen to him a couple years ago. remember this bumbling statement he had here? watch. >> how serious is it? any implication that it was coming here and these are things they have seen were coming here director clapper? i was a little surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh, i'm sorry. i didn't. >> eric: that was diane sawyer doing an interview as there were people being arrested in for terrorism, he had no idea. >> it's almost as if there was picture and picture. he hadn't been briefed well. that was classic, also -- rare because we haven't had the terrorist attacks that we thought we could have had because we have these protocols put in place after 9-11. jim clapper, across the board from w
your help. >> last week's debate will give way. their big head to head on thursday in danville, kentucky. speaking of debate prep, president obama is going to do some of his own this coming weekend preparing and perhaps retooling ahead of the next presidential debate. that is next week. back to you guys. >> vice presidential debate is another big talker. they were talking about it all over the weekend especially on the sundays show. >> what should we expect from joe biden following the state's poor performance. turn to the political debate coach that prepped george w. bush mccain and romney for the primaries brett o'donnell for that answer. >> i am sure vice president biden got a phone call from the white house saying look we didn't go after governor romney. you have to turn up the heat. debates abore about on the grou the one who controls the debate. i don't mean necessarily attacking your opponent. it didn't attack the president overnight governor romney stayed on message. whoever stayed on message will be viewed as the victor. biden has been coached to give back on message a
on the president, puts pressure on the staff. so the next two weeks, not going to be fun in the obama camp but i would expect a sharper more offensive-minded debate. >> as you point out, you're dealing with an area where the headlines have not gone their way in the past month. dan, i loved having you on. we'll see you next time. >> good to see you. >> dan bartlett joining us from atlantic. ga gary cokaminsky. >> i'm here in the control room. i was watching like much of the viewers. meg whitman joined. a lot of people wondering why is the slot down again today? let me tell you. every time a ceo comes on the air there's anticipation that the ceo is going to say something to at least stop the selling. i'm going to explain why that was not the case. certainly as you know, miss whitman was really on message. she talked about the employees many times. she talked about all the new products. when she was asked specific success things about the business, she spoke about the great new products. you asked a fantastic question about the board of directors. i don't think she really answer thad question. as y
and that is in the next four and a half weeks, and i'm sure in massachusetts is a good example for the republicans perspective where president obama is clearly going to run very well there. canned scott brown withstand the blue tide fair and right now, the democrats are doing well. you have a tea party backed candidate in indiana, richard mourdock and richard luke are in the primary. that is a very tight race but you have solid republican candidates. i was in missouri may be a month ago but in arizona where democrats are competitive and i think it just shows that one these races are still fluid. you can be and decided and we can say the race for president started with undecided voters yesterday. for some of these voters the senate race, it's going to be a couple of weeks before they really engage. the other thing that is going on here is, i don't know if people vote in races like a chess game but i do think you know, people pick and choose one from a i'll m and one from i obey. clearly one thing we haven't talked about is the fundamental dissatisfaction americans have with government and as they g
. president barack obama, governor mitt romney get ready to square off at this week's debate. >>> plus a couple of big surprises from arnold schwarzenegger. he talks candidly about his love child, and the gay marriages he performed while governor of california. >> and so much more. and an epic fail by the united states. after being up by a significant lead, the guys in the ryder cup lose big time. a re-enactment by john berman coming up. >> this is what i was doing yesterday. oh. oh. >> for shame. >> it was awful. awful. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start" i'm zoraida sambolin in new york. >> and i'm john berman. sad about the ryder cup but happy to be in washington this morning. it is 6:00 a.m. in the east. up first this morning we are counting down to the showdown in denver. president obama and mitt romney preparing to square off wednesday night in the first of three critical presidential debates. both sides are falling all over each other to praise the other candidate to lower expectations for their own candidate, except for one guy, new jersey governor chris christi

the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden
. the regular americans really don't start looking at this stuff until three weeks before the election. people might start paying attention. who do you trust? how can you trust barack obama going forward when it failed so miserably the past four years by joe biden's own admission. that is even if you want to blame rusch, you have a guy in the white house who promised us he would make things better, he is made things worse, he is a failure. >> i am not one of these crazy who do not believe the evidence in front of my eyes. clearly the argument is resounding and working. but you know what, he is very good. ashley: would never have enough time. want to touch on the debate very quickly and what you think the key issues are tomorrow night in denver. late-night funnyman david letterman jumping into the political orders. his controversial statements next. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or turn 30-million artifacts... ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and ser
the obama team to say he is flip-flopping, this is something we've seen before, but now the governor, former governor, has about two weeks to sort of massage his message, and you see a real political game going on here. it's a real fight. >> yep. okay. jessica, thank you. appreciate it. >> american airlines now blaming passengers for jamming the lox that cause the seats on three flights to come loose. now, a spokeswoman says the lox, like the one shown here, got stuck after passengers "gunked them up" with spilled coffee and soda. the airline promises it won't happen again. the seats just the latest in a series of troubles for american. the company has also been dealing with labor issues, flight delays, and cancellations. >>> tainted medication in 23 states now being lirnked an outbreak of meningitis. we're going to take a look at what's being done to stop it and how you can protect yourself. ton about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how
but the bigger one will be following week at hofstra university when mitt romney and president obama go head-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of t
that drubbing that president obama took, and we've got the vice-presidential debate this week and maybe that was close are than the last two presidential debates and they're very important. >> as of now, dead heat. all across the country, the national average, dead heat. >> i like that, and by the way, we still ask scott rasmussen in about a half hour, how many people were polled after the jobs report. how big a factor is the jobs report in that time. >> and we got the twitter feed this morning, as a matter of fact, and he said this is three day tracking poll so those numbers are the latest since the debate. >> so they wouldn't include the jobs numbers? >> not the jobs numbers, but the debate performance. >> and definitely the debate. and we've got a surprise drop in the unemployment rate friday, mainly because of the household survey, that would be 60,000 people surveyed, and from that, miraculously, we found that 873,000 people had joined the work force. and at "varney & company" we want to focus on what we call the real unemployment rate, which is 14.7%, when you take into account th

obama among likely voters leads by three points, 49 to 46. that's down from a five-point edge that he had in our poll just about three weeks ago. if you also look at the nbc "wall street journal" maris swing state polls, he's pulled even with president obama in the state of florida. that's the biggest swing state, 29 electoral votes. if you go then to virginia, he's also pulled within two points in virginia. he had been down four or five before. the bad news for romney in these three polls is that in ohio, a state that is critical, romney strategists think they have to win florida and ohio to get to 270 electoral votes. he's still down eight percentage points, and what we've seen across these polls is that obama is increasingly competitive with romney on who would do best to handle the economy. but the fact that we've got a little bit of movement nationally and movement in florida and virginia tells me that there's still some play in this electorate, in this contest, and that's the hope for romney going into this debate tonight. >> what do you think happened in florida versus in ohio?
. republicans were thrilled with his performance. democrats were not so thrilled with president obama's performance. the question is going to be has mitt romney been able in a race where he's been clearly behind the president to hurt him enough and sustain that momentum over the next three weeks. that's what's really critical. there have been strong debates, john kerry had a strong debate against george w. bush in 2004. but he wasn't able to translate that into lasting benefit. that's the best of the next three weeks, to see whether romney can keep it going or whether president obama comes out with a higher level of aggression, higher level of energy in the next debate and stop the momentum that romney accumulated last night. >> okay. yeah, i had so many different thoughts, john, as we watched the whole thing. i remember that a lot of republicans were supporting newt gingrich because just for this moment, they wanted -- they thought newt was such a great debater, they wanted to see someone like newt talk to president obama about his policies and about the last four years. and they tho
just draw a new one. well, he appears to be doing just that. the republican party might hate obama enough and be frus stratr enough to let him wink and do more. if so he faces something far more challenging than a good debate never the last weeks of the campaign. he faces a moderate republican. let's get started. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> america's biggest corporations have a unique per expect tifb on the economy. i recently had an opportunity to talk to the heads of three very different, very successful businesses if finance, in manufacturing, and in technology. when i chaired the panel for the clinton global initiative. they are lloyd blankfein the chairman and ce o o of goldman sachs. andrew live russ, the chairman and ceo of dow chemical and john chambers the chair manned and ceo of cisco. the conversation was fascinating. listen in. >>> lloyd, let me start with you. when you look at the global economy, right now, you know, what is it, four years after the crash, what does it look like to you? >> well, we're definitely in a m muddle-through phase, slow growth, v
, in these last weeks to get across the notion that reducing tax rates and improving corporate tax competitiveness, that, those are things that can help the economy. i don't see anything in the obama campaign that will help the economy. he has a debate, they have a debate on concerns wednesday. do you think that he should begin the debate by focusing on his tax plan? >> wiser political people than i will have to make that call but i would certainly think it would be an opportunity to explain to the public that cutting taxes is a way of encouraging people to invest, to expand, hire and that's really what the economy needs. david: finally, the federal reserve board, you have been critical of the federal reserve board and its actions. some people say ben bernanke says, while there is no inflation there is not necessarily an economic cost to doing all of the bond buying they have been doing, the money printing they have been doing. is there a cost and if so, what is it? >> i think there is a longer term risk. i think right now it is doing very little good. lowering interest rates at a time when mortga
higher, s&p 500 will open up higher as well. we've got a busy week ahead on the first day of october and the fourth quarter, first day of the new supreme court term and the first debate between president obama and gop challenger mitt romney, that's set for wednesday and wall street looking ahead to the september employment report, that's due out on friday morning. the international air transport association raised its industry profit forecast, expecting the airlines to make $4.1 billion, up from an earlier forecast of $3 billion but considerably less than last year's $8.4 billion figure. >>> general motors is recalling almost 41,000 cars sold in warm weather states, the recall is due to a plastic part that could crack and cause a fuel leak, the chevy cobalt and equinox and pontiac g5 and torrant suv sold through 2007-2009. >>> we'll go back to ross in a second but we are indicated higher here because of what's happening there, and i don't know if there's no riots, maybe that's it or it could be what we already talked about. >> the ryder cup victory? >> there were no french guys on th

"sesame street" is now a political football. mitt romney shot at funding pbs at wednesday's debate. >> today, president obama took it on as well. >> for all you moms and kids out there, don't worry, somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he's going to bring down the hammer on "sesame street." >> i know everybody wants to be sympathetic to big bird and to "sesame street." i love the product. it was started the year i was born. >> thanks, bring that up. >> why does taxpayer money need to go to a product that is clearly so profitable? they have toys. they have games. they make money from licensing and revenue. why do taxpayers have to subsidize that? as a stand alone business, "sesame street" will do just fine. >> doesn't the profit from all those toys go to the nonprofit group? there's a children's television workshop that gets the money. >> they n
't think anybody is doing anything deliberate, but i do think the one number that should concern the obama forces is the fact that he is -- if rasmussen is correct, that far below 50% because historically the undecideds in the last weeks, indeed sometimes it's the last few days of an election, the undecided us usually shift against the incumbent simply because the incumbent is the one they know the most about, and therefore the incumbent is the one that has the edge in having people make up their minds one way or the other. i know in my own first race, i was well behind my opponent who was at 48%. in the last ten days, i said, look, after all the money he's spent if he's only at 48%, that means 52% of people want somebody else, and it turned out i won. he got 48 1/2. connell: president is 48 in the rasmussen overall, he's up 2. and also up in the gallup tracking poll. >> i would say i think romney has had a rough few weeks here and i think it is pretty clear that the polls are moving in the direction of the president in ohio and florida, pennsylvania, and so on, iowa. but this is not -- th

the greek prime minister. next week sees the vice president presidential debate before we get two more presidential debates. one of the major issues is it that looming fiscal cliff. president obama challenged mitt romney on his plans for cutting the nation's debt. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real hit romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fell wloe on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. >> the president's vision is trickle down government and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> president of the committee for responsible federal budget, director of the fiscal policy program, as well, and joins us now. have you heard anything -- have you heard enough of of a commitment from either side of the aisle that you thought might actually work? >> well, what we didn't hear was enough specifics. so i think the g
democrats. >> there was a decision from the sixth circuit court of appeals on friday of last week that came out in favor of the obama campaign position that for three days before the election, civilian voters have to be treated the same as military voters. >> when you come to this campus, it is the ohio state university. there are 60,000 students plus on campus including the satellite campuses. our phone lines are open. set aside for those in the state of ohio, the president traveling here. also chris-crossing the state and into the 800 at doral votes that are up for grabs. let me go back to issue two. a big ballot initiative. >> it has to do with redistricting. in 2006, the democrats swept every statewide office with the exception of the state auditor's position. every single office, that was in 2010. it coincides with the census which triggers a redistricting. republicans did with the majority party typically has gotten when given the plan to redraw maps. that favors republicans. we had a 50-50 state. and when you look at the legislative map and the congressional map, it is way out of wha
to do. >> i asked you earlier in the week if it was a romney rally you said no. didn't have to argue this would be an obama rally. >> i would think so. same people who were trying to push the victory leading to the prices yesterday how do they figure the unemployment numbers here. so what we're really seeing and i wrote about it in my comments this morning, is we're still going by europe is driving the bus. and yesterday was moving up. could you see some romney influences? the coal companies that he mentioned and some of the health care people and you can see some of the obama influences. but that's kind of the backdrop. the reason why the numbers look disproportional says a blot our mrk markets being illiquid. >> what does it mean about merkel going to greece. is that pivotal? >> i'm not sure unless there's a surprise. poor greece is out there festering. everybody is concentrating on spain. greece has not been solved. would be good to solve it. but that doesn't change anything about spain which is a much bigger factor and spain brings in the challenge of italy behind it. so that the
interested in exactly what is said in the debates the next four years when whoever wins says in the week or two after the election. to me, that's the time to step up and do the broader leadership and be tougher. >> what would you like to hear president obama say, either before or after the election? talk about romney, what about obama? too if your view as mine is that we're not going to have a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending and the biggest obstacle is on the revenue side and that, as i do believe and i have asked a lot of democratic senators if my perception is correct and they say yes, and that is, that republicans continue to believe that at the end of the day in the 11th hour democrats will relent again as they did in 2011 and at the end of 2010. frankly one of the things the president has to do is to make it crystal clear that he is damn serious and he is not going to accept a deal that doesn't have both revenues and spending. let's just lay that out there. and i think that when that becomes accepted, that is my fear of why we go into january. i think we may have t
